Not a whole lot of sharpening Duane. I'm well pleased with the way most of these turned out, if I could manual focus better, I would have had more keepers.

Beautiful. You and that favorite island do some nice work. Either Turnstone would end up on our wall.

Awesome work there Sharon.

Geez, you read everywhere to stay clear of TC's on the 1-4 especially the 2x but heck, you've prooved them all wrong here.

Top notch.

Thank you Matt....I've always heard that also. The TC I got even auto focuses on the 100-400....I've got to play with it a little more, I think I had
something wrong on the lens yesterday and that's why I had to manually focus.

Might be worth a try Gary, I was shocked when I got the old 1.4 out and tried it.....and really shocked with the 2X yesterday.

I looked at these these early this morning. I got in a rush to go shooting and forgot to tell you how great these are. These are GREAT. Wish I could depend on that IQ with a 2x. I'd order one. Thinking about a 1.4 though.

Great series Sharon, beautiful shots! I've never had any luck with teleconverters except for moon shots, and even then it's hit and miss. Nicely done!

LOL....thank you again Jack. The 1.4 will probably work great for you.

Wonderful images and close ups Sharon... the 2X TC did a marvelous job... I really like the Ruddys and the 4th and 6th shots... Very nice.

These shots are very impressive with or without a tc. I'm always reading that the 100-400mm doesn't take tc's well and this disproves that. Looks like I need to pick up a 2x. The Turnstones are especially nice. Great shooting Sharon!
